Hold fast, skijorers

Cowboys, ski bums, and horses anxious to run: skijoring is a crowd-pleaser. The high speed, high action sport has been steadily gaining traction in western communities. There is no mystery as to why: A cowboy on horseback propels a skier holding a rope through jumps and gates – resulting in cringe-worthy spills and thrilling saves.
